    • Cube LTD Race 27.5 Hardtail Bike 2015

  • Cube LTD Race 27.5 Hardtail Bike

    Not only did the Limited Race receive a completely new and improved frame, it also got the full component treatment with a race-worthy Shimano 3x10 drive train, air-sprung suspension fork and hydraulic disc brakes.

    With this component pick the Limited Race is ready for the occasional battle on the race course as well as regular trail rides.

    The limited Series frames have received a number of updates to make them lighter, stiffer and more efficient. The Limited Race features double butted 6061 aluminium tubes, chain stay mounted IS disc tabs, internal cable routing, a PressFit bottom bracket and a new tapered head tube. By using a 27.2mm seatpost diameter Cube were able to make this top frame ride even more comfortably. Agile Ride Geometry ensures the LTD Race is balanced and nimble on the trail - regardless of wheel size.

    With the 3x10 Shimano Deore drive train, upgraded with the rear derailleur and Compact chainset from the legendary XT group, you can rely on smooth and precise shifting even under load. Up front the 100mm Manitou Marvel LTD Air fork provides maximum control and comfort while shaving off lots of weight thanks to the alloy steerer tube. The wheels are built in-house with durable Shimano XT Centrelock hubs and CUBE ZX24 rims. Stopping is handled by the very dependable Deore disc brakes. In true CUBE fashion everything is colour matched and completed with high-quality CUBE Performance components.

    Technologies:

    • Wet Paint Surface: On polished, brushed aluminium and all HPC frames, the logos and graphics are applied in multi-layer wet paint. Cube use this surface treatment technology mainly to save weight.
    • Integrated Cable Routing: Internally routed cables offer many advantages. Cables are protected from dirt for longer life, weight is saved thanks to the absence of external housing and the bike has a clean, sleek appearance.
    • Press Fit BB: With Press Fit bearings, the bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly into the frame and not screwed in as usual. This gives a wider bottom bracket shell and allows the use of a wider down tube and more broadly-spaced chainstays. Every millimetre of additional width gives a significant improvement in lateral stiffness.
    • Advanced Mechanical Forming: With their Advanced Mechanical Forming technology Cube can mechanically transform different frame tubes and thus optimize them without material-wearing welding work for the respective requirements. Along the obtained organic look, the production method is primarily motivated by functional reasons. Multiple converted tubes enable the manufacture of lighter and also stiffer aluminium frames.
    • Agile Ride Geometry: Cube ran innumerable tests to develop the Agile Ride Geometry in their series of big wheel bikes. Three important details resulted. Increased fork offsets allows for the same trail as Cube's 26in bikes without having to steepen the head angle, thus maintaining generous toe clearance to the front wheel. Secondly they shortened the chain stays without compromising the seat angle. A patented construction to mount the front derailleur gives more tyre clearance while keeping a conventional seat angle, leading to a perfect riding position for every rider size. Last but not least the BB height remains the same as on their 26in bikes. These measures lead to a natural riding position. Every mountain biker will feel immediately at home on a CUBE 29er or 27.5.
    • Aluminium Lite: 6061 aluminium alloy requires a heat treatment for the finished product. It is a stiff, very corrosion resistant, fatigue resistant,high-elongation material suitable for light tubesets with high stiffness.
